, we have about 30 seconds. >> nancy pelosi and harry reid. harry hopes to stay in majority, nancy wants to be leader. she was on wolf blitzer's show yesterday. i hope they're not leaders, but you cannot govern through half truths, innuendo and half-baked charges. harry reid stood in the well of the senate and charged that mitt romney had not paid taxes for ten years. demonstrably false. and nancy pelosi said when security in libya came up, she threw an innuendo that the congress didn't give all the money they asked for. another grenade tossed in the middle. you cannot govern through half truth and innuendo. that's what harry reid and nancy pelosi seem to major on. >> there we got it. that's our panel. that's our unsolicited advice for the afternoon. thanks very much for being with us. we look forward to the debate tonight. >>> margaret, thanks very much. ahead we're going to hear from two of the top advocates for mitt romney and barack obama setting the stage for tonight's presidential debate. and mitt romney has no backer as passionate about his potential than his wife, ann. just

and having a discussion, on this important topic, you pushed something through that you and harry reid and nancy pelosi thought was the best answer and pushed it through. what we did, we worked together. 200 legislators, only 2 voted against the plan. we didn't raise taxes, we didn't cut medicare by $716 billion. we didn't put in place a board that can tell people ultimately what treatments they're going to receive. we didn't also do something that i think a number of people across this country recognize, which is put people in a position where they're going to lose the insurance they had and they wanted. right now, the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise, a study by mckenzie and company said 30% are anticipating dropping them from coverage. for those reasons, for the tax, medicare, for this board, for people losing their insurance, this is why people don't want obama care, it's why republicans said do not do this 37. the republicans had a plan, they put it out, it was a bipartisan plan, it was swept aside. i

people with not one republican vote. didn't even ask for one. he and nancy pelosi and harry reid. >> the point eloquently during the debate actually in -- i thought he did that very well. that's not exactly my question. my question is what you said is during the campaign, you know, you lean to the right and then you come back to the center when you are actually in the general election. so to me that is you say one thing for a certain audience to get them to support and you then say something different, maybe completely contradictory to another audience which some could define as lying. is that an etch a sketch moment what we are seeing? >> some could refer to that as campaign tactics. good campaign tactics without violating one's principle. i -- nobody is more conservative than -- congress and house than phil gingrey. i'm in the top seven, tied for first. i felt very comfortable with what the president said the other night during the debate. with what mitt romney said. i am very comfortable with his position and i have no doubt that he will govern to the right of center and that'

: democrats are fighting to hold on to nevada. with political heavy hitters like senate majority leader harry reid, courting the latino community. it is a huge opportunity, nearly 300,000 voters are latino. >> all over the country, no more magnified any place than nevada is the hispanic vote. >> reporter: republicans want to take the state back. in seven out of the last ten elections, nevada voted republican. >> we understand to win, you don't -- you have to win the hispanic vote. we have to be engaged. >> courting their vote, here she is, soledad o'brien. good to see you, soledad. >> thank you, brooke. >> in talking to a number of the latinos in nevada, do they feel like there is this equal effort from both democrats and republicans to win their vote? >> we saw that on both sides, whether latinos who are democrats or latinos who were republicans or folks trying to figure out where they belong. they're frustrated. they feel like the democrats have broken promises. they feel like the republicans have harsh rhetoric on immigration and even though polling shows that latinos are more likely to al
